10. In these divisive times, the Episcopal Church needs the gentle touch of a corporate attorney-turned-bishop.

9. In the mystical world of Kentucky Episcopalians, Stacy Sauls is the yin to Ted Gulick’s yang.

8. The only way to break the hypnotic spell of Bishop Robert Duncan’s eyebrows is through choosing a bushy-bearded teddy bear as the next Presiding Bishop.

7. The Diocese of Lexington’s global reputation for affirming evangelicals and attracting an astounding 0.4 percent of eastern Kentuckians into the Episcopal Church.

6. Left-of-center bishops feel slighted in comprising only four-fourths of the official slate.

5. Long-suffering white males feel slighted in comprising only three-fourths of the official slate.

And the Number One reason to Nominate the Bishop of Lexington as Presiding Bishop . . .

1. Best diocesan website ever!
